Long mornings and early evenings slowly creep back into the mountains. Not so much that you’d notice right away but in another month or two the midday will seem very short. Subtle changes in the flow of the light begin to wake up Joe-Pye-Weed as it forms it’s pink cloud-like blossoms. It seems to tower above the all the other plants except for the trees. Although the flowers are just beginning to bud the sweet scent already surrounds the spots in which they grow. The little bumblebees can’t resist that promise of the nectar that crave so vigorously and are already exploring the blooms to scout out their claims. I wouldn’t be surprised if one day science discovered that these early visitations are a form of grooming that bloom. And that the best worked flowers produced the sweetest nectar and most potent pollen. Neither would it be a surprise to find that the bees mark these flowers in some way so that they know what plants they’ve groomed. My childlike imagination sees the little bees indexing each individual floret and saying to herself, “that one’s mine, that one’s mine, that one’s mine…”. She has an innocence of her own as she claims the whole plant and moves on to the next one as the soft morning ebbs towards noon.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
